    Paid a second visit to the medical center as it's quite local to me and took a short walkaround video. Could really do with getting myself a head mounted torch so that I can focus manually as the kit lense on the Canon 650d is so slow at auto-focusing! I didn't realise until afterwards that I completely missed a few rooms, didn't even go in them while I wasn't filming! Not sure how I managed that, but I could have been distracted by the new addition of a dead cat under the bed, that's slowly rotting and being eaten by maggots. IT STINKS. You don't need to be inside to smell it!

    I didn't get many photos while I was there either so I'll stick those on here after the video (Although they're on the end of the video anyway if you don't want to scroll down anymore! Save your tired fingers!)

    Yet to meet anyone else anywhere I've been yet! Surprising really, as a few of them are quite commonly reported on!

    Definitely need to get used to lighting places more, currently only using a small hand torch and a flash gun, which tends to blow everything white when inside due to bouncing light off of everything, so it doesn't get used very often. I'll get there though, all about learning what does and doesn't work and experimenting!

    It's not too hard to find if you manage to find out the area that it's in. Won't be disappearing any time soon. Always out and about exploring around Sheffield.

    What i find strange is you"ve been doing a Photography course for 3 years into this stuff and not done the Sheffield Tourist Hotspots I"d have thought they would have been part of your coursework TBH?

    We had a limited time on this subject, it was for a final major and I work at the same time and all weekend so the time I got to go out was during college time, so it's limited time, I've been to St Vincent's abandoned church, cannon brewery, a few abandoned houses near my area, a railway, ski village and crookesmoor school and caretakers house, now I've left I want to go to the places I meant to go to and discover more, because before this course I didn't even think of looking for these places, I've loved everyone else's photography but never thought of doing it myself, plus I have a group I work with and its when we can all plan to go
